"Ricordi and the Fantastic Five" Ricordi Tip by Nemorino
Ricordi, Milan: 1 reviews and 2 photos
The one thing I really messed up on my visit to Milan is that I didn't see the exhibition "RICORDI E I FANTASTICI 5" -- and why not? Because I didn't notice that little sticker saying it had been extended, so I thought it was all over before I even arrived in Milan.
The Ricordi music publishing company was founded in Milan in 1808, and for four generations it was run by Ricordi family members who managed to buy up the complete archives of La Scala (in 1825) and went on to be the publishers of the "Fantastic Five" opera composers: Rossini, Bellini, Donizetti, Verdi and Puccini.
(Have you ever noticed that the Italian word fantastici sounds a lot more fantastic than its English translation?)
